Nice Addition but Not Really Neccesary,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Saitek Pro Flight Yoke Power Adapter (PZ44UX) (Personal Computers)
I recently purchased the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke, extra Throttle Quadrant, and Rudder Pedals from Amazon. After reading all about the products, it recommended purchasing the power adapter if you were using the USB hub on the yoke. It states some computers don't have enough power through the USB cable to power all of your add-ons. And I read some reviews where people had said their add-ons had stopped working after about 10 or so minutes of use. I didn't want this to happen, so I purchased one. It works great, don't get me wrong, but I have forgotten to plug it in on a few occasions and have never had an issue. On the other hand, if you purchase the Flight Control Panels with all the switches, controls, and lighted panels, I would say this wouold be a necessity as these require more power than the throttle quad and rudder pedals.
